Djokovic vs Nadal (By: FairPlayBet)
Australian Open 2019 Finals
IMO it's very difficult to predict here who will lift the trophy at the end. Both, Novak and Rafa were in amazing for during previous two weeks. You can easily find great arguments in favor of both players.
The world No.1 leads 27-25 in H2H, leads convincing on this surface 18-7, leads 7-0 in last seven on this surface. He plays for his 7th title in Melbourne that is the record. He is better returner, in fact probably the best ever returner.
I think he never was so good on this surface like he was in previous two weeks. No lost set here in six matches. Not allowed break of serve since opening round. The Spaniard plays to become the first one with at least two titles on each Grand Slam. If becomes really hot but they keep the roof open, this should go in favor of Nadal cause Đoković never liked too high temperature. Looking on the offered odds, the value is on Nadal cause I don't think this is 1.75/2.25 match. IMO this is much closer to 50:50, I would say 1.90/2.00 are the more accurate odds.
But, although betting on the value odds would bring profit on the long term, it doesn't mean it will bring it today. So, I'll skip this value and will go with something I feel it's very safe choice and that's over the totals. Hardly this will end in straight sets victory for any of these two. Plus, those should be close sets. So, 41.5, IMO that's good for going with over bet.
It won't be surprising if we see another epics finals, something similar to that one from 2012 that these two have played here. Back then after almost six hours Đoković has won 7:5 in the 5th set.
